Can I Help or Help Coach? Yes, we always need help. This is the information on the Mandatory Standards for Coaching: With regards to your Teck Regional Dryland and Snow Camps, this is a friendly reminder to familiarize yourself with CCBC’s minimum mandatory coach qualification policy.  Coaches leading/supervising the camp or leading a group of athletes at the camp must be NCCP L2T ‘trained’ (must have completed the L2T (On-Snow) Workshop), while coaches that are assisting must be NCCP Community Coach ‘trained’ (must have completed the Community Coach Workshop). Link to Policy!

“Sammy G”. doesn’t roller ski much (twice ever so far).  Do you think the camp would be good for “Sammy G.” too or should I wait another year for camps for him? For the Roller skiing portion on Saturday we just do an introductory to roller skiing for those who are younger and inexperienced in a parking lot and car free paved path. If they are reasonably good skiers they usually excel in this setting. Also, if you do not have roller skis all of the clubs bring their team skis so that skiers can try roller skiing; there will be enough skis if you cannot find some to bring. I think that “Sammy G.” will be fine.

Thanks Again,

Adam Elliot
